From quality coffee to delectable dinners, Geraldton’s booming dining scene has become a reason not just to pass through, but to stay a while. While you’re busy exploring all the awesome things to see and do around Geraldton, you’ll also need a couple of days at least to tackle these favourite eat and drink spots…
Start your day off right with an epic coffee from Quiet Life. The crew have been slinging some of Gero’s finest brews since 2015 – as well as some bagels and brunches that’ll knock your socks off. Come for the coffee, stay for the chill vibes.
287 Marine Terrace, Geraldton
You might be moments away from the crystal clear water of the Coral Coast, but eating a slice of the Provincial’s wood fired pizza… Well, you could be on the streets of Naples! We reckon they also go perfectly with a spritz or two, as if you needed any convincing.
167 Marine Terrace, Geraldton
Situated right on the Geraldton Foreshore, Two Foreshore is the perfect spot to fuel up before a visit with the kids to the waterpark, or a dip in Gero’s turquoise waters. The family-friendly café will hook you up with a great coffee, and their bacon and egg croissants are always hard to pass up.

The Jaffle Shack and Fleur Cafe
Is there a greater joy in life than the simple pleasure of a coffee and a jaffle? Enjoy the nostalgic treat at one of the Jaffle Shack’s two Geraldton locations – both handily close to the beach, of course! Make sure to bring your pup along to say hello. Or step next door and treat yourself to a tasty meal at Fleur Cafe.

Freemason’s Hotel and Pub
What’s a trip outside of the big smoke without a visit to a classic historic pub? Geraldton’s oldest pub, Freemason’s is a no-frills drinking hole with portions that require stretchy pants. Our ideal spot, to be honest!
79 Marine Terrace, Geraldton
Although we’re big fans of a decadent brunch, it’s just not something you can do every day of the week. Flow Community can sort you out with nourishing, whole-food feasts, cold-pressed juices and superfood smoothies. If you’re on the go, grab a raw treat from the cabinet – but if you’ve got time, take a look at their cute goodies and gifts for sale.
46 Gregory Street, Geraldton
Spruce Juice Co
If you can’t get enough of Flow’s delicious cold-pressed juices, why not head to the source? Spruce Juice Co are Gero’s foremost juice purveyors – but that’s not all they do! The family-friendly spot also serves up a delicious selection of healthy lunches, with plenty of vegan options if you prefer to keep plant-based.
82 George Road, Geraldton
Piper Lane Café
Charmingly rustic, Piper Lane has got you covered for all your daytime imbibing – whether it’s a Five Senses coffee or a boozy brunch! It’s only made better by soaking up the sunshine on the terrace.
158 Marine Terrace, Geraldton
RT Café and Restaurant
While the Provincial will have you feeling like you’re in Europe, RT is about as Aussie as you can get. Their menu is filled with uniquely Australian ingredients, as well as proteins that include kangaroo, crocodile, and more.
84 Marine Terrace, Geraldton
Barnacles on the Wharf
When you’re this close to the ocean, you can’t resist some fish and chips – and Barnacles is a truly epic fish and chip shop. Locally-caught seafood is the star of the show, whether it’s battered Red Throat Emperor or fresh Rock Lobster rolls. If you prefer to cook it yourself, you can pop next door where they sell the day’s catch.
70 Connell Road, West End
For a special night (or lunch!) out, hit up Salt Dish for their seasonal set menus. The back garden is a delightful setting for their comforting fare, which has ranged from Venetian seafood risotto or crispy duck leg with duck fat potatoes, to pulled pork tacos or chicken and ginger meatballs.
35 Marine Terrace, Geraldton
Bob’s Boutique Bar and Old Man & The Sea Rooftop Bar
Follow your epic dinner with an epic nightcap at Bob’s Boutique Bar, home to a whopping 100-plus gin collection – and maybe some tapas if you’ve got room! Take things – literally! – by taking the lift up to the venue’s rooftop bar, the Old Man and the Sea, or head there earlier in the evening for one of Geraldton’s best sunset views.
25 Cathedral Avenue, Geraldton
Another more fancy favourite amongst the Geraldton set, Skeetas’ epic seafood is a sight for sore eyes – from a spectacular whole-baked Blue Bone Groper to fish tacos or local scallops with bacon… It’s a seafood-lover’s dream!
3/219 Foreshore Drive, Geraldton
To get a true taste of Geraldton’s multicultural flavours, you’ve got to stop in at the Saturday and Sunday morning Platform Markets, which run from 8 ‘til 12 each weekend at the Old Railway Station. Whether you’ve got a hankering for Malaysian, Indonesian, Cambodian or French, they’ve got a little taste of everything – as well as a selection of locally made, handcrafted wares.
Old Railway Station, Geraldton
Cutler & Smith
Speaking of tapas, Cutler & Smith is serving up some of Geraldton’s best share plates. From a classic charcuterie to crispy wontons, they’re perfect for sharing with pals – and a couple of their ample selection of craft beers, of course.
41 Chapman Road, Geraldton
For a luscious bowl of pasta, you can’t go past the aptly-named L’Italiano. This beachfront favourite is always buzzing with locals and visitors, keen to get their hands on their traditional Italian fare – as well as their pasta, their hand-stretched pizzas and homemade gelato always bring a crowd.
